History of: Boast
boast mid-13c., from Anglo-Norm. bost, probably via Scandinavian (cf. Norw. baus "proud, bold, daring"), from P.Gmc. *bausia "to blow up, puff up, swell" (cf. dial. Ger. baustern "to swell," M.Du. bose, Du. boos "evil, wicked, angry," O.H.G. bosi "worthless, slanderous," Ger. böse "evil, bad, angry"), from PIE *bhou-, variant of base *bheu- "to grow, swell" (see be). The notion apparently is of being "puffed up" with pride; cf. O.E. belgan "to become angry, offend, provoke," belg "anger, arrogance," from the same root as bellows and belly (q.v.).
